Thanks to the Fed, it’s no secret that dividend investing is red hot these days. As the Central Bank has kept interest rates in the basement, traditional income products like CDs or Treasury bonds are basically paying nothing.
This has investors searching far and wide to get their income fix. More often than not, it has them looking toward stock dividends to get the yield they need.
And while individual dividend stocks have gotten the nod from many investors, dividend ETFs have seen plenty of investor activity. As a group, they now hold billions of dollars’ worth of investor money. There certainly is plenty of appeal in using one of the ETFs – diversification is the point – but what about a growing dividend yield?
Are the dividend ETFs worth it, if you’re looking at growing your overall payout over the long haul? The answer isn’t so simple.
